Where Was Bros Filmed: Here’s How ‘Bros’ Captured the Gay Scenes of NYC and Provincetown

A person has to think that the movie, co-prepared by Billy Eichner, is at least partially autobiographical. How spot-certain was the authentic script?

The script that Billy and Nicholas wrote collectively was superb. And, of training course, the closing solution is a pared down edition of that original—there are so numerous amazing scenes and sets that there just was not time for. And a lot of it was very certain, you know, Billy is a New Yorker and he is aware of New York. I usually laugh due to the fact Los Angeles–based writers love to speak about, oh, [these characters] operate into a New York alleyway. There are no alleyways.

So, it quickly read through extremely quickly as New York. We genuinely desired it to come to feel like you ended up bopping all over the city, with certain neighborhoods in brain. Billy’s character [a radio show host on the board of an LGBTQ+ museum on the verge of opening] life near Lincoln Heart and Columbus Circle, practically on the Higher West Facet, and it makes perception for him to be surrounded by the arts as he’s creating this museum. When he goes to the [circuit party], we wished that to be someplace out in Brooklyn.


Of course, accurately, or like 3 Dollar Invoice [in East Williamsburg]. Not necessarily a Meatpacking sort of club, but some thing a minor additional area and in-the-know. We did get to do some exteriors where they are Citi Biking in Williamsburg as well—Citi dropped off a station for us. And then, for the museum itself, we needed that to be around Central Park exactly where a great deal of museums are.

New York Metropolis is monumental in the passionate comedy canon. How did you draw on that background?

We hoped from the start off that this motion picture would come across its position in that canon—having that large homosexual romance in New York Town. I can checklist off all the great New York rom-coms—Billy even watches You’ve Acquired Mail in Bros—that we wanted to reference. We required to capture that sensation of walking by the park with the seasons transforming, of the serving the turkey and then carrying the Christmas tree and lighting the menorah.
